This Saturday the legendary Galloping Ghost Arcade is hosting another Mortal Kombat Tournament Special event that should not be missed if you are in the Midwest. For those of you unaquinted, Galloping Ghost Arcade is located in the suburbs of Chicago in Brookfield, IL and is home to more arcade machines than any other arcade in the USA. The arcade is also run by huge Mortal Kombat fans and often have the cast of the original games show up for special events. They even have custom made arcade cabinets for both Mortal Kombat (2011) and Injustice: Gods Among Us. I have no doubt that next year they'll have a Mortal Kombat X cabinet.

This MK event like the previous event back in January, will have many actors from Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat 2 and Mortal Kombat 3. in attendance. But this event has the largest lineup yet of Mortal Kombat actors yet who will be making appearances, so if you are looking to just meet them or get autographs, this is the day to go!

Here's a quick list of the current confirmed roster of attendees:

Daniel Pesina - (Johnny Cage, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, & Reptile)
Rich Divizio - (Kano, Baraka, Kabal, & Quan Chi)
Phillip Ahn - (Shang Tsung)
Kerri Hoskins Branson - (Sonya Blade)
John Parrish - (Jax)
Lia Montelongo - (Sindel)
Sal Divita - (NightWolf, Sektor, Cyrax, Smoke)
Brian Glynn - (Shao Khan)
Carlos Pesina - (Raiden)
Tony Marquez - (Kung Lao)

The event starts this Saturday June 28th at 11am and runs all night until close at 2am, with the actors stopping by when they can and tournaments running throughout the day. It'll also be streamed to the gallopingghostarcade Twitch channel for those who can't attend. Or are busy that day and just want to watch later.

For more details and updates, sign up on their Facebook Event post or just show up that day.

Sadly once again I can not attend due to previous plans, but hopefully you MK fans can! But hopefully we can get a report or two from the fans in attendance again.

Ugh... I wish my boyfriend didn't have to work, I'd be spending our one year anniversary here if he didn't! Ugh!

Wow! so many legends are coming! I wish can go! I know will be hard but will be cool if you can take a front and side photo of they face to remake them in 3D :P

All these tournaments are boring to watch - same 3 characters doing their same 10 combos again and again. Could be much more interesting if players were forced to use random select thing to choose their fighter, call it "MK Random Select Tournament"

I'd be down for a "Real Men Do Random" tourney along all fighting games.

I wish I was able to go to that. I live in Michigan, but I still don't have the money or the transportation :P
